How did I get here?
Feeling the creativity floating in my veins through the transformation of the material within my hands. The inspiration in the fusion of materials and various techniques – ancient felting and model-making, in custom-made garments. That’s where I am now.
I remember the scene so vividly: me, six years old, curiously gazing in wonder while Anna, an old friend of my mom, gently takes my doll, looks at her for a moment, then puts her aside and with rapid precise movements draws some lines with a chalk directly on a cotton fabric and it turns out to be a dress pattern. Together we sew the dress. And even with my dolls damaged leg she looks so beautiful in her new garment and it fits perfectly.
In that moment I sense a concentration and a decision form itself- I want to learn this! To be able to make a pattern that fits! – and that’s probably where my journey started… Throughout the years it has been one of my leading threads: The desire to encounter the person in front of me and catch her beauty and uniqueness, and sum it up in something created in particular for this very special person. To create something that matches your dreams and desires where you are feeling GOOD, comfortable, sheltered & cared for.
Lately, my work has taken on new dimensions with the implementation of light sources and a continuous curiosity in exploring the relationships and connections between people, between human beings and nature…
And after a long interval with not much sewing and tailoring I’m again experimenting these tecniques.
